Nice advice from Seth Godin’s blog on choosing not to make yourself miserable needlessly.
Part of it is acknowledging that not all things are for all people, particularly when it comes to cultural activities. A few years back, English National Opera did a campaign called Everybody Needs Opera (playing on their acronym). God knows I’m an opera evangelist, and during that campaign I worked for a trade and educational organization that promoted opera, so I was sympathetic to the sentiment. But it was a silly campaign; being open to giving everything a chance is one thing. But my life or yours is not necessarily impoverished by the lack of a specific enthusiasm, nor is your life less enriched by my inability to connect with all of your passions and interests.
